The youngest person to swim the English Channel completed the English Channel Swim almost 31 years ago.

That person was and is Thomas Gregory who was born on October 6th 1976 who was 11 years and 336 days old making him almost 12 years old when he swam the English Channel.

The almost 12 year old boy made the swim across the English Channel in 11 hr 54 min on September 6th 1988.

So as of next month which is September it will be 31 years since the youngest person Swam the English Channel.

That's pretty amazing for that young of a person to make the English Channel Swim in that amount of time.
